New Kids on the Block announce ‘The Magic Summer 2024' throwback tour: Full list of cities, dates

Presales begin Wednesday, Nov. 1, with tickets to the general public set to go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 3

Calling all Gen X-ers and Gen Y-ers: If you've been looking for your next night out, you got it. (...get it?)

Iconic 1980s and 1990 band New Kids On the Block will embark on a 2024 tour of more than 40 cities, including a stop in the Chicago area, a release from Live Nation said Monday. The tour, titled "The Magic Summer 2024 Tour," is inspired by the 1990-tour of the same name, which also featured magician Harry Blackstone Jr., the release said.

“The true ‘magic’ of this tour is in the music, the moments and the memories that we get to create - and recreate - with our amazing fans each night,” Donnie Wahlberg said in a written statement. “Feeling all the nostalgic feels of the original Magic Summer, with the bond that we’ve shared throughout the years, will make for a most magical time indeed.”

Special guests Paula Abdul and DJ Jazzy Jeff will join Wahlberg, along with original NKOTB members Danny Wood, Joey McIntyre and brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight on the tour, which includes more than 40 dates, the release said.

In the Chicago area, the group will perform at the Credit Union 1 Amphitheatre in Tinley Park on June 15. The band will also hit a handful of other Midwestern cities, including Cincinnati, Milwaukee, and Noblesville.

Presales begin Wednesday, Nov. 1, with tickets to the general public set to go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 3., Live Nation said.

Also on Nov. 3, the group will release a "revamped version" of their 2008 comeback album "The Block Revisited."

Overall, the band has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, with several chart-topping songs including 1988's "Hangin' Tough," and 1990's "Step by Step."
